How to fix blocked sinks?


Typically, it is wise to let professional plumbers handle your plumbing issues, as they carry specialized training and industry knowledge. However, here are a few solutions you may try to get your blocked sinks unblocked:


  • Hot water: Boiling water can dissolve fat or soap that might be clogging your pipes. You would have to pour the water into the sink, wait for it to go down and repeat the process a few times. However, keep in mind that in case of PVC pipes you should not use very hot water, as it would result in damaging the pipe.
  • Vinegar and soda: A vinegar and soda solution is effective too under similar conditions. While vinegar cuts through the grease, the chemical reaction with soda causes bubbles that helps to loosen the blockages.
  • Plunger: If the sink is completely choked, rendering it impossible for hot water or a solution of vinegar and soda to flow through, you may use a plunger to loosen the blockage.

These methods work when the blockage isn’t extremely severe. However, in case of a severe blockage, hiring a plumber becomes imperative.

Tree Roots

Gardening can be wonderful and fun but it is important to know where your sewer and stormwater drains are laid before planting certain flora. Cracks and spaces in your pipes are especially vulnerable to strong, deep roots and can cause significant damage to your pipe’s health and your wallet! Out of all the blocked drain issues throughout our 20+ years of plumbing experience, tree roots is the number one most common problem.

Flushing Oils

The most common cause of kitchen sink blockages is oil and waste scraps clogging the drains. Simply DO NOT pour oils down the kitchen sink, but instead pour it into containers to prevent the fats blocking your drain.

Hygiene Objects

Regardless of wipes and female hygiene products being a kind of tissue, you SHOULD NOT flush them down the drain. We advise our customers to dispose of these into a rubbish bin and to remember that all wipes can cause blockages and issues with your drain.

Hair

Another common blockage problem is quantities of hair blocking drains. This can easily be prevented by using a hair catcher over your drain or simply remove the hairs from the drain after your shower

Leaves & Debris

Leaves and debris often block stormwater drains. Make sure they’re kept clear. What we recommend to our customers is to place a Protective Gutter Guard or a simple mesh covering over the drain to keep them clean and clear.
